Sorry for long post.
I'm due back at work this Friday after 9 weeks sick leave following laparotomy & diagnosis of stage 4 endo.
Surgery was needed as cysts and endo discovered during baseline scan ahead of ivf treatment (which was put on hold pending surgery). Will have my 3rd zoladex injection tomorrow.
I now have a baseline scan at fertility clinic on 14 Jan, which if it looks OK, I'm assuming means we'll start IVF treatment the same day (stimulating ovaries).
My major worries are, having just come to the end of an extended period of sick leave, I don't know if I'll be entitled to any further leave /time off work for ivf purposes - not sure how I'll manage ivf and various appointments. Then there is the zoladex issue : I know it's often used as part of the ivf process but Im worried on proceeding with IVF so soon after tomorrow's injection. Problem is im now 40 and entitled to only this one cycle we are receiving on NHS.
Everything is compounded with a few family members being really ill just now and I'm not sure how I'll manage everything. Anxiety levels are going through the roof.
Sorry this is a bit of a ramble, but has anyone undergone ivf so soon after surgery for endo? Thanks very much X X X X
